TECH HELP - HOW THINGS WORK
I have created this page to give you a better understanding of how things work
on a snowmobile.  These tech help pages have been taken from various vintage
snowmobile magazines in the 70's.  I am posting these pages as a service.
If you are having problems with your sled, take it to a professional to have it evaluated properly.  These pages are being posted for informational purposes only  and I suggest that if you do not have the mechanical background that you do not attempt to do the work yourself.   I cannot be held responsible for the information being accurate as the they are coming from magazines and I did not write the articles.
ALWAYS BE SURE TO WEAR PROTECTIVE EYEWEAR AND GLOVES.
The last thing I want to see is someone doing work on their sled and doing damage to the engine.  Please refer to a dealer if you need help. I will be posting all kinds of articles on subjects like 2 stroke engines, timing, spark plugs, care and maintenance 
and so on.  I hope you enjoy reading them. SEE RESTRICTION OF LIABILITY BELOW
THE PAGES ARE VERY LARGE IN SIZE SO YOU CAN READ THE TEXT.
THIS WILL BE SLOW LOADING IF YOU DO NOT HAVE HIGH SPEED.
IT'S WORTH THE WAIT FOR GREAT READING.

DON'S VINTAGE SNOWMOBILE PARTS

My name is Don Coleman, and Iíve been riding and salvaging vintage
snowmobiles for over 35 years.  I repair and salvage old sleds locally and
ship parts worldwide.  There isnít much I havenít seen when it comes to
antique snowmobiles!

For you old sledders out there, I used to have a website named 
Donís Vintage Snowmobiles, several years ago now. 

Iím back now, with my own domain and rebuilding my website, so stay tuned
for updates Ė including a Vintage Snowmobile Discussion Forum dedicated
to vintage and antique snowmobiles, featuring a Free Classifieds Section.

Also in development is a Vintage Sled Photo Gallery with photos of my own
sleds, and user submitted photos of your old snowmobiles and a 
ďVintage Snowmobiles on the WebĒ Directory.



I AM A VINTAGE SNOWMOBILE ENTHUSIAST AND WRECKER
SPECIALIZING IN MAKES AND MODELS 1985 AND OLDER

WORKING FROM MY FAMILY FARM IN WAINWRIGHT, AB,
I RESTORE, REPAIR AND COLLECT VINTAGE SNOWMOBILES.

I LOVE OLD SLEDS AND LOVE TO SHARE MY INTEREST WITH OTHERS.

IF YOU NEED A PART FOR YOUR SLED OR
IF YOU CANNOT SOLVE A PROBLEM, PLEASE EMAIL ME.

TEL # 780 755 2258



ON A PERSONAL NOTE, I WAS HAVING TROUBLE WITH MY REWIND FOR MY
1974 PANTHER VIP.  I SENT IT TO DON, HE CLEANED UP THE WHOLE UNIT,
REBUILT THE REWIND FOR ME AND MAILED IT BACK TO ME IN A SHORT PERIOD.

IT IS HARD TO FIND PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE OF THESE OLD SLEDS
AND KNOW HOW TO SERVICE THEM PROPERLY.  DON USED TO BE A MOTO SKI
DEALER IN THE MID 70'S BUT NOW SERVICES ALL BRANDS OF SLEDS.

DON ALSO HELPED ME GET MY 1977 SKI DOO EVEREST RUNNING.  HE HELPED ME
CONVERT MY TILLOTSON CARB TO A MIKUNI AND MY SLED NOW WORKS GREAT.
